Pinnacle and Banner 8 users: update Internet Explorer to avoid critical vulnerability

UA Security Awareness Team

Are you a Banner 8 or Pinnacle user? Microsoft
has recently addressed a serious vulnerability in the Internet Explorer web browser in an out-of-band (not available in Windows Update) security update. This vulnerability allows an attacker who successfully compromises the web browser to gain the same user rights as the current user, which may include the right to install software, execute programs, and may be able to examine existing files and folders.

The UA Security Awareness Team asks that all employees who use Banner 8 and Pinnacle to update their version of Internet Explorer.

If you are not a Banner 8 or Pinnacle user, but still use Internet Explorer, the team encourages you to migrate to a more secure and supported browser such as Chrome or Firefox.

How to update Internet Explorer:
